Valencia resident Kerry Carmody, chief executive of Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, was named regional chief operations officer for Providence Health & Services, California on Monday.

"Kerry has been the key to the success of Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, which is one of the largest and most respected hospitals serving the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys," said Arnold R. Schaffer, vice president and chief executive of Health and Services. "He is a strong leader and he's passionate about the communities he serves.

"Those qualities are crucial to Providence Health & Services, California, as we experience significant growth in our mission to ensure quality and affordable health care is available to all."

In his new position, Carmody will oversee the five Providence California medical centers and numerous ancillary care centers, including the Providence Holy Cross Health Center in Santa Clarita, according to information provided by the Medical Center.

He will transfer to the regional post when his successor is named.

"I'm extremely honored to step into this new regional role, although it means leaving the incredibly talented and dedicated staff at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center," Carmody said. "As we expand, Providence Health & Services is poised to become recognized as one of the best health care organizations in Southern California.

"That is a credit to our leadership, physicians, employees, our board and the philanthropic foundations at all five of our medical centers who are devoted to providing quality and compassionate care."

Carmody, who earned his start as a laboratory scientist in 1973, is affiliated with a number of organizations including the Hospital Association of Southern California, the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley and others, according to the information provided.
